A couple of two-time Senior PGA Professional Champions share fourth place as 2019 winner Mike Northern of Colorado Springs and Doug Rohrbaugh of The Snowmass Club posted 70s, with Northern’s round being highlighted by an eagle on No. 11.

The final round will be contested on Tuesday. The top seven finishers will qualify for the national Senior PGA Professional Championship, set for Oct. 15-18 in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
